Mr. Zachary Dorfman

Hi everyone!


I am so excited to begin my second year at Collins Elementary School! Before this, I taught in Passaic, NJ and Horsham, PA. When I'm not teaching I love to rock climb, play the guitar and cook. I'm a bit of a sports fanatic, so please feel free to stop by for a quick sports chat during dismissal!


My motivation for teaching is primarily because I remember what it was like being in those moments where school felt impossible. Providing each of my students with a safe space where risk taking is rewarded, and hard work will result in success, is my goal. I want my students to know that I will be right there with them through their struggles, and then we can celebrate when they say "Aha! I got it!"


Let's make this the best school year yet!

Mr. Dorfman
